Are there any two-word verbs in English language that can be considered as most common, like give up, break down etc? I am curious because I do not know is GIVE UP a verb or just GIVE whithout UP.

Those are technically called Phrasal Verbs. I suppose those don't count here for simplicity. The whole phrase is the "verb" or semantic unit, even though one of the words (such as "give") can be a verb in its own right.

very much fun! Only in the last minute I tried the words written above the quiz like enter, answer, name, include and base. Did not lead me to want and work though.

It says it is based on "contemporary English" yet the verbs google, tweet, text etc are not in the top 250?

Excellent and challenging quiz. Just a wee suggest: I know that the description specifies that this is based on American English, but would it be possible to add anglicised versions as acceptable answers (such as 'realise' and 'recognise')?

The present tense of "born" is "bear". It should be accepted (and should be the actual answer).

I was thinking the same thing. There is no way that conduct, establish, mention, publish, etc. are more common than drink.

I get that this is based on an American listing, but you should probably have the British-English spellings of words (where the British and America spellings differ), because I guessed some of them only to think them wrong because I'm British and spelled them 'correctly' only for them not to count. I kind of feel a little bit dirty typing in the American spellings.

Is 'will' classified as a modal verb? I can will something into existence, or will my belongings to a relative.
